Integrative Medicine for Mental Health (IMMH) Clinician Registry

Integrative Medicine for Mental Health (IMMH) strives to offer the most up-to-date information on integrative medicine in mental health, practical clinical solutions, and now provides 'open access' to a new clinician registry of healthcare professionals supportive of the integrative medicine approach.

Integrative medicine for mental health involves a whole body approach utilizing multiple fields of medicine and nutritional sciences. The goal is to help patients regain mental wellness through the use of individualized metabolic testing, nutritional therapies, dietary interventions, along with traditional medical treatments, including medications and psychotherapy.

Integrative medicine, as defined by National Center for Complementary & Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), combines mainstream medical therapies and Complementary & Alternative Medicine (CAM) therapies for which there is some high-quality scientific evidence of safety and effectiveness. NCCAM reported that out-of-pocket costs for CAM by adults in the U.S. in 2009 exceeded $33 billion, and the numbers keep climbing.

By focusing on the individual's unique genetic, biochemical and nutritional status, customized treatment plans can be implemented to provide better treatment outcomes.  This method can be used to augment traditional medical approaches. Relevant laboratory analysis is used to evaluate and treat underlying contributory biomedical issues which may include nutritional deficiencies, food allergies, infections, and toxicities.

Integrative Medicine for Mental Health (IMMH) is committed to educating medical professionals in the use of research-based therapies through conferences, workshops, webinars, newsletters, and web-based resources.
